According to my limited knowledge, that should be a "shark mesh" bracelet.

A "Beads of Rice" or BOR, is more like this:




There are several makers out there. I think Staib is one of them. Search for one with tube ends for the look as in your picture.

Omega OEM Mesh bracelets are also of the best. For straight tube ends look for the ones for the Planet Ocean. They come in 20mm and 22mm. What ir the strap measure for your beautiful watch?

Also if you search a little more, you can find some vintage ones.

I hope this helps. Best regards.

... I bought the Forstner beads of rice and happy with it -  note that the band slims down immediately from the lugs, and it is not a very "substantial"/heavy band.  Below is a picture on my Heritage Chrono.  It goes well for a more vintage-y look.  Happy hunting!

Pforzheim based, making mesh products since 1922 and available in different, sizes and finishes. I have bought a couple and will vouch for the quality. I don’t have them to hand otherwise I’d post some pics. Hopefully here is a link to the German retail side. The Asia side seems to have a seperate link and I’ve no experience of it. The link is their direct retail website, I ave no affiliation and hope it doesn’t break any site rules.
Good luck
